News from Kruse: July 2022

Filed under Kruse House

Now that’s CURB APPEAL !!!  – by Billie Childress

I believe we all pay special attention to our front door gardens and it’s no different at the Kruse House Museum Gardens. The plants we use to achieve our eye catching displays are mostly limited to donated annuals and some years the concoctions …..oh excuse me…..I mean our carefully designed plantings…..are better than others. This is a good year!

The red velvet tidal wave petunias are gigantic and beautiful. The red salvia and the colorful snapdragons round out the lineup. All planted by Shirley Schramer and Dorothy O’Connor on a Wednesday morning which seems so long ago now. In early Spring we have such faith in those tiny plants we put in the ground. Months later it’s a big payoff! ….sometimes anyway!

The Kruse Garden is located
at 527 Main Street,
West Chicago, IL 60185

Save the Date: The Historical Society’s Ice Cream Social will be held in the Kruse Garden on September 10th. The house will also be open for tours.
